Furusato Matsuri

The annual Furusato Matsuri (‘Hometown Festival’) is a chance for the residents of Japan’s other prefectures to dazzle Tokyoites with their region’s unique culture – and, of course, its food. After you’ve sampled enough specialities at the food stalls, sit back and watch recreations of up to 20 popular regional festivals including Aomori’s Nebuta Matsuri and the Akita Kanto Matsuri, or cheer on your favourite at the costume character dance contest.

We went to the Matsuri festival on Bank holiday Monday. It was very busy but very exciting to see so many different traditions from various areas of Japan. We saw music, singing and dancing and then went down onto the floor of the stadium which was covered with stalls selling all sorts of local produce, but mainly food and drink. There were loads of free samples!
